Christmas Gift Ideas

The first place to go and look is Choose Love. Help refugees, those who have left their homes and countries and everything they had. We have so much.

✨ 33 Walks You Shouldn't Miss in London - great for those of us that live in London and don't take advantage of it or anyone about to visit and needing direction.
✨ The Organised Mum Method - I'm biased because I worked on this book but this gives you back control of your house, the cleaning and gives you back time to do stuff you'd rather be doing and housework-free weekends!

Kimono Dressing Gown - if I didn't have children I would get myself this. Warm and soft and the most beautiful colour.
✨ Leopard Scarf - really fun, a lovely present for a friend, goes with everything whilst adding a hit of colour.
✨ Turtle Doves - I just love their fingerless gloves and have bought them for a couple of people including my teamie Marie who plays the violin in church and who's little hands freeze. They recycle cashmere and wool to make their products which is how I found them in the first place.

✨ Stripey Slipper Socks - warm and comfy with spots on the bottom to stop you slipping.

Christmas Gift Ideas - Children

๐ŸŒˆ Vehicles Transfer picture - great for the 4+ vehicle lovers out there.
๐ŸŒˆ World Map - for those who love to find out about the world this is a huge map with 3D figures to play with.

๐ŸŒˆ  Monkey Music - this was local to us and when Jack was a baby, because he was the third and our house is heaving with stuff I got him a term of music classes for Christmas and he loved it.
๐ŸŒˆ Organic Cellular Blanket - I love the colours of this and they are just lovely for newborns to wrap them up in. Tempted to get one for my three as they love wrapping themselves up in a blanket.
๐ŸŒˆ  Playmat - I got this for Jack when if first came out. It was lovely and soft and packed away into a bag really easily. Great for taking with you if you go to someones house or in my case, having a square of dog hair-free floor for him to lie on.

Christmas Gift Ideas - Beauty

Silke London Hair WrapEyes
⚡ Viseart Libertine Palette - This looks beautiful, fun, but wearable and not overwhelming. £43.50

⚡ Silke London Silk Hair Wrap - I do not know why I want this so much. But I really do, and I suspect I may try to get away with wearing this without actually being in bed. We know that silk pillowcases can help your skin and hair but for those of us who wake up looking like pre-Always Bon Jovi this is the business to keep your hair in place. £50

⚡ Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Charms - I love the new limited collection of Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipsticks (although I still hate the name) and these minis are really cute and at a great price point. £25

Skin Brightening

There are a few reasons why you may want to think about skin brightening, usually to lift dull looking skin, lightening areas of pigmentation and to create a healthy skin glow. Now is a really great time to work on getting healthy glowing skin as during the autumn/winter months we are less exposed to UV (the number one cause of signs of aging, pigmentation and damage to our skin). But it’s also a time of year where you may notice your skin getting duller and tighter and that’s mainly down to central heating drawing moisture from the skin and us going from the cold outside to warm inside and vice versa. Here are my tips on how to brighten your skin, what ingredients to look out for and some of my favourite products.

Modern Apothecary

I love a small brand that does a few products really well and Modern Apothecary is one of those. Their products are formulated using Cacay Oil which is naturally full of Vitamin E, Linoleic Acid and Retinol so it targets signs of aging, dehydration whilst providing a huge antioxidant boost to the skin. Research has shown that Cacay Oil can improve firmness, hydration, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, reduce redness and sensitivity.

Modern Apothecary Skin Elixir and Face, Hair & Body Oil

I've been using three of their four products for the past couple of months and have really loved them, especially the Total Face, Hair & Body Hydrator and the Skin Elixir. A little of both goes a long way which makes these incredibly reasonably priced - the Skin Elixir is £19.95 and the Face, Hair & Body Hydrator is £14.95. And it's really lovely to work with such an ethical company.
